Seaforth Pines was closed by the State Government in 2008. It was a blow to the local community who appealed to keep it open.
With a long history that resonates fond memories with thousands of people in the area, it stood to reason that Seaforth Pines could not be left abandoned. consequently, community leaders, government figures and neighbours raised concerns that Seaforth Pines should be restored and re-opened for generations of children and adults to come.
Now, it’s happened
Luckily for Seaforth Pines and the community who love it, a buyer was found. New owner, Don Griffin, once a regular visitor to area, is keen to see the facility put to good use. It’s not an easy job, with quite a few years of neglect to put right, but Don and his onsite team are working hard to ensure the centre and it’s facilities once again provide an affordable, accessible venue in the region for school, sports and community camps and events.
So far so good!
